Gothenburg

It's time to start your adventures

Gothenburg is encircled by rocky shoreline, deep forests, tranquil lakes and the surging sea to the west. No other Swedish city gives such easy access to nature. Right on the doorstep are wide open spaces and magical islands. Four centuries ago, when the decision was taken to build a harbour city on the west coast, the ambition was to open up Sweden to the outside world. Building a city on Swedish marshland, wedged between Norway and Denmark, was no easy undertaking, but with the help of the Dutch, English, Scots and Germans the vision was realised. 

Today, Gothenburg is a flourishing green city with a vibrant cultural scene, world-class restaurants and a fascinating history. At the same time adventure is never far away. There is always an island waiting to be explored or a mountain to be conquered from the saddle of your bike. With its light summer evenings, colourful autumn days and snow-blanketed winter mornings, Gothenburg is where you can experience the real Sweden.

GOTHENBURG; ONE OF THE WORLD'S BEST LGBT+ DESTINATIONS 

We are happy to welcome you to an open and tolerant city with focus on everyone’s equal rights. Gothenburg is the first city in Sweden to have a LGBTQ-council and West Pride was celebrating ten years 2017.

British LGBT Awards 2018 nominated Gothenburg in the category best LBGT+ Destination, saying: “Its laid back, yet urban-vibe, amazing gastronomy and close proximity to the stunning West Swedish countryside makes it a fabulous all year-round escape for curious gay and lesbian travelers looking for a slice of stereo-typically open-minded, chic, Swedish hospitality.” 

GOTHENBURG IS A CITY BUILT FOR MEETINGS

Gothenburg has many years of experience hosting national and international meetings and events. The city is easy to get to and is home to a string of familiar companies and brands, as well as cutting-edge expertise in research and industry. Europe’s largest fully integrated hotel, exhibition and congress centre is also located right in the city, close to hotels, entertainment and world-class restaurants.

There are excellent opportunities for hosting meetings in Gothenburg, large or small. Conference facilities are located in the city centre and many offer accommodation under the same roof.

Gothenburg is a small city from an international perspective. But compared with many bigger cities it can boast an impressive list of hosted meetings, and an exceptional level of commitment in the city. Politicians, trade and industry and the universities all work together to ensure that events run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Prices are below the European average, but quality is of the highest level. Our surveys show exceptional customer satisfaction among delegates who visit the city. In the 2014 Satisfaction Index, Gothenburg was given a rating of 6.5 out of 7.

Gothenburg is also the Nordic region’s top destination for sustainable meetings.

"I took a private tour with one of the founders, Erik. He was absolutely wonderful! He took such care in planning our day together and then extended some advice for what to do on my own after our day was done. He highlighted local foods and drinks. I felt like I was personally taken care of while I was in Stockholm. I cannot wait to get back and be part of the group travel package during Pride in 2019. I cannot recommend StandOut travel enough!"

He was exceptional with all our questions and the tour with people from all around the world was very good. We learned a lot about Sweden we didn't know before arriving. I would highly recommend using StandOut for your trip to Sweden as a LGBT traveler. Well worth the money spent!"
